Welcome back to Florida and Lotus Proof of Technology

Little did I know my welcome back to Florida included losing power(it's hot here and humid, who knew ;-)) for a few hours, my domains failing(for 10 minutes) and that a stack of rack servers would be blocking my way into my office. (Thanks Paul and congrats on the new son, looks like the other 2).

There was also the flat tire on the Camaro? Or the speaker which is loose suddenly as well? Honestly, what did my grandparents do to my car while I was away? And I had dropped AAA before we left too. Yep a great day overall.

Today, for me, the travel weary and unshaven(shaver left in London) went to a PoT at my local IBM office here in Boca Raton.

Danelo and Michelle did an excellent jith the slides, but I would have preferred more live action.

LiveText for example doesn't come across very well until you show it in action, and that IS impressive.

So many new people I met at the event, some I had never heard of, one not far from my office too! So it goes to show you the customers are out there but you got to track them down.

Interesting discussions around Foundations and Quickr Personal as well as lots of love for DAOS. We usually see a 30-40% reduction in disk space so go upgrade to Domino 8.5 and conserve space and energy. If you can't get it done, we are here to help you.

If you are a Lotus shop and haven't been updated on what is happening, let me know and we will do it with you, in person or online depending on availability and location.
